Frequently Asked Questions

What does the appointment include?

The first appointment will be a birth control consultation with a healthcare/medical provider to decide on the right method for you. This visit will also include a wellness/well-woman exam, pregnancy test, STI test, and if 21 or over, we will also cover the cost of a Pap test. If you choose an IUD or implant at your appointment we will cover the cost of the device, insertion, follow-up visit, and removal whenever you're ready.

What if I don't have insurance?

We pay the full cost for any of our clients.

What if I do have insurance?

Our partner health clinics will bill your private insurance first (unless you ask us to bypass insurance), and we will pay any co-pay for Middle Tennessee residents. There will be no out of pocket costs to our patients.

Will you pay for the pill or other short-term methods of birth control?

At this time, we only cover the cost for an IUD or birth control implant. 

What if I don't identify as a woman?

We serve any person capable of getting pregnant and serve anyone regardless of how they identify.
